ACES Scholarships and Books

If you're interested in helping out the ACES scholarship fund but
Don't have money to spare
Do have more good books than you need
please let me know.

We've tested online sales through a bookstore in Oregon and it works well; you type in the book's ISBN, accept or reject the price offered and, when you're done listing, the store provides a pre-paid shipping label via e-mail or URL. You entail zero costs and the listing and packing process takes just a few minutes. It's extremely simple and reliable to use.

Alone, we are unlikely to raise a huge pot of money but together, I think we could make enough to help fund a scholarship or two.

Note that the store has high standards and, like most bookstores, offers very low prices*. But if you or your newsroom colleagues have been hoarding quality books, including textbooks, and want to spend a few minutes helping a good cause, send an e-mail and we could get you started.

*This is what we raised in our first test shipment last week.
